Lathrop Support Services

The community’s version of assisted living will provide you with the care you need when you need it right in your own home.  Lathrop is licensed by the state of Massachusetts as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).  BUT at Lathrop the continuum of care is delivered differently than you will find at more traditional CCRCs.

Lathrop has been designed to empower residents’ independence, however they choose to define it.  Lathrop residents flourish and enjoy life because the resources are in place immediately available to help them to care for themselves without worrying about the future. We provide resident driven social and recreational programs, exciting cultural and educational activities and exercise classes that focus on the well-being of each resident.

Lathrop is pleased to offer the services of Massage Therapist Jodi Kaufman LMT, MA, NCTM. Jodi, who is certified in geriatric massage, provides caring ,professional and affordable bodywork for seniors of all ages. A room in the lower level at the Inn in Easthampton has been converted to a massage “spa” room and now houses a massage table. Similarly, in Northampton, the Wellness office doubles as a massage room. Both rooms provide a private, soothing, relaxed setting in which to receive the healing benefits of massage. Please visit Jodi’s website for more information.
